Phillips and Hitachi Data Systems on a combined note have offered a Vendor Neutral Archiving (VNA) solution that allows delivery of medical images from all disciplines to clinicians across multiple departments and locations within the health system in less than 3 seconds.
Phillips HealthSuite Digital VNA combines standards based interoperability, scalability, and high speed performance to help reduce costs and avoid repeat exams. The platform offers a universal data management solution in which medical images, documents, and potentially other clinically relevant data are archived in a standard format.
This advanced Virtual Neutral Archiving addresses the biggest challenges healthcare organizations face in making their many millions of images, often stored in multi-vendor systems and infrastructures from various departments, available to virtually any clinician at any location within the health system.
Thus, the new jointly offered software suite from Phillips and HDS presents high speed universal access to imaging data for the different clinical settings that can help contain costs, avoid repeat exams, and improve patient outcomes. Phillips claims that its Hybrid on-premise and cloud based data management solution has the ability to manage more than 135 billion medical images.
Powered by Saleforce.com, the data from newly released HealthSuite can be accessed by patients and provider on a variety of computing devices.
Philips will showcase its data management solution at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2016 Annual Meeting and Exhibition, taking place Feb. 29 – March 4, at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas, NV.
The solution will be available from mid 2016.
